Recap: Wizards District Gaming 77, HEAT Check Gaming 95

The hottest team in the NBA 2K League goes by the name of HEAT Check Gaming and it solidified that claim Saturday with a dominant 95-77 victory over Wizards District Gaming.

The game not only had playoff implications, but it was a source of revenge for HCG after it lost to WDG in the first round of the past two NBA 2K tournaments.

Those games didn’t count.

This one did.

“This one was personal,” said HCG Hotshot, who finished with 51 points and 10 assists in the win. “It felt good to beat them. They were talking a lot after the two wins. I’m just happy we got one back.”

Through the first three games in the current four game regular season win streak, HCG lived off of outstanding defense and timely offense. Saturday was in reverse as the team went 11-for-14 from 3-point range and 39-for-47 from the field while moving MaJes7ic to power forward in which he controlled the paint with timely blocks that lead to transition points.

“Boo Painter finished with 44 on me so the fans are going to think he killed me,” said MaJes7ic. “But I got us enough stops early in the game to give us a lead and we could just front run from there.”

Aside from Hotshot contributing 51 points, Sharpshooterlos added 17 points from the point guard position and Jalen03330 delivered nine points on three 3-pointers to boost the offense.

“At the start of the season, we struggled shooting,” said Sharpshooterlos. “Hotshot told us to step it up. He said he needed some knock down shooters around him and we did just that.”

With the win, HCG improved to 7-4 on the season while dropping WDG to 5-6. Up next for HCG is a matchup with Kings Guard Gaming on Saturday, August 4, at 1:00 p.m.
